This Stand Mixer, or the Other One?
Somehow, I'd manged to live my entire life without ever using a stand mixer (or an electric hand mixer, for that matter.) Something about them is intimidating, so I stick to the wooden spoon and the whisk and if I'm really feeling motivated I might pull out Hubby's fancy Bosch. Please don't ask me to explain why the Bosch is okay and a stand mixer isn't. I have no idea.
I've gotten along just fine, but now I've got two vintage Sunbeam mixers in my kitchen and I've got to give one of them up to my daughter, just as soon as I decide which one I like best.
That means using them. Both of them.
This looks like the older of the two and, given the choice, I'll usually pick the older one just because it's older.
I wound up using this one to make Strawberry Jello Poke Cake, mostly because it was the first thing I found on my Pinterest board that called for a mixer. I had to figure out the hard way which beater went on which side and what that lever on the back of the base is for, but I made a cake! It wasn't photogenic, but the boys scarfed it down.
